Atilla the Goose

By

United States

Posted Mar 28, 2014

This goose was given to me by a friend I had been helping with his farm. Having raised ducks before, I figured geese couldn't be too much different. Pick a duck up by his feet, and he goes completely passive. Should be the same with geese, right? Not so much. I picked this goose up that way and she was still trying to take a bite out of my knee. That's how she got her name. The thing I liked best was her mothering skills. Once we got her a mate, Atilla laid one clutch of 8 eggs and hatched all eight of them and raised them to maturity.
